Powerball - Feverpitch

Spent my $2... I know I know - I have the same probability of getting mauled by a polar bear and a brown bear on the same day...

But what if I win

Anybody else playin'

On the way in...a guy was walking in with his lotto portfolio.

In the last 10 years - Lotto expenditures $3 - including $2 tonight...winnings.. $0

Only hedge I have against the fiscal cliff

I rarely play, but at nearly 500 million, I couldn't resist. Just bought 5 chances. Only need one to win though! I figure if I take the lump sum, after taxes, I might be able to squeak ino a new Star

Not that I'll win, but I'll buy a ticket for sure. If I don't win, doesn't it just go to schools ersum****?

I bought 5 chances today. Like all the others said at almost $500 million why not.

I pledge right now if I win the first person that PM's me can have my 86' That's right you can have it.

The only reason I would give it away is to make room in the garage. Wait a minute, I should be able to build a bigger garage.

Office pool, 150 chances: So does that mean I have to just get mauled by one bear tomorrow? How about a Husky Malamute, I seem to get mauled by it everyday.
